Welcome back to another Testing In The Pub, recorded this time at the Software Testing Clinic in London.

In this episode Dan sits down with¬†Paul Holland, Ben Kelly, Vernon Richards, Mark Winteringham, Alex Wolff, Evan Holland and probably a couple of other people as well ūüôā

Over a few beers they talk about Rapid Software Testing, context driven testing, their experiences of testing in different circumstances and cultures, and how to test products for different markets. There’s some great tips on how testing can really bring customer value as well.

You can follow Paul, Ben, Vernon and Mark on Twitter so if you want to continue the conversation with them then that’s the best place to go.

In this episode we talk about the future of testing and community. Listen to us and special guests talk about where we think testing is heading and why.

We also talk about why we started Testing In The Pub and why starting a podcast or any other sort of community activity is extremely personally rewarding, as well as being an important part of what keeps the testing community as vibrant and useful as it is.

Have a listen and hopefully we’ll you want¬†to do the same.

Testing In The Pub Episode 33 – Community Confusion

Welcome to Testing In The Pub Episode 33 РCommunity Confusion.

In this episode we talk about how communities, whether it be the testing community or many of the sub communities within it, can sometimes become confused and un-happy places if the community members let them. Social media has done a lot of positive things for the testing community, but the rise of social media, in particular Twitter, can make communication more difficult and this can increase misunderstandings. We also talk about what we can do to communicate effectively on-line and off-line, and how the testing community should, and does, make a lot of what’s available.

The clever amongst you may have noticed that this episode was not recorded live in a pub – we’re trying out Skype for recording some episodes which we hope we enable us to give you a much better range of interviews and discussions than we’ve been able to capture so far, mainly while at conferences. So have a listen and let us know what you think.

Until next time, on Testing In The Pub….
